Thanks mykeal for correcting my mistake about the Beal's amount of barrel protrusion.
Then doesn't jlb43's frame look like it's an earlier Euroarms Beals type?

Yes. That's exactly what it is.

I have no idea.

I like mine, but it does have that fouling issue big time. And although it has the Beals frame, it does not have a couple of other more subtle Beals-only characteristics.

On the other hand, it is a 'unique' example of the 1858 RNA design. Some folks like to be able to raise one eyebrow and say, "No, it's not an 1858 Remington New Army. It's a Remington-Beals Army Revolver."

You can cut the loading lever sail back to match a Beals to make it more believable.

I see the difference from this real Beals. Did they ever make a Beals replica?
